Dime magazine recently named Kobe the player of the century

Thanks for confirming what all of us here already knew.

But I have a question. If we were to disregard Kobe's contributions over this period to the franchise. Which laker has contributed the most to the success of the franchise. Shaq led us to 3 titles along with Kobe and dominated on a level not really seen before but also caused some disturbances and was partially responsible for the demise of a dynasty and the Kwame days. Gasol also was an integral part of multiple championship teams, but is also responsible for two very disappointing playoff failures and disappearances. Next to Kobe Lamar Odom played the most games in a laker uniform during this time but arguably never contributed on the same scale statistically O'neal or the spaniard. There is also Derek Fisher( I kid I kid), Robert horry who made. Lungless clutch buckets, and Ammo(basketball warrior). So who would you say has contributed the next most to the team since 2000.

Zen master Phil and Ninja assassin Mitch do not count, I am talking strictly players.
